WORD suspends Guadalupe River clean-up contracts
The Water-Oriented Recreation District has cancelled Guadalupe River cleanup contracts for the final two weeks of its season.
WORD General Manager George Cushanick said low use on the Guadalupe this summer led to the decision.
“We’re not even expecting that big of a weekend on Labor Day,” Cushanick said. “Due to the low utilization of the river, we thought it was necessary to do this. Its fiscally responsible for us to cut back these costs.”
A pair of contractors, outfitter Paul Rich of Mountain Breeze and Stryker Saunders, clean sections of the river.
Cushanick said WORD’S health and sanitation committee decided the cleanup with the low use was not cost-effective.
The annual Friends of the River cleanup will still take place on Sept. 16, Cushanick said.
